Legal Research Certification, April 11

Sharpen Your Research Skills! Attend Legal Research Certification on Saturday, April 11, from noon to 4:00pm in Classroom D. Open to all 1L, 2L, and 3Ls – lunch provided.

Learn expert tips and strategies from librarians and lawyers to help you succeed this summer and beyond. Instructional sessions taught by our W&L Law librarians will cover legal research methods and resources, including secondary materials, case law, statutory, and administrative law research. Efficient use of Lexis, Westlaw, Bloomberg Law, and alternative online sources is also an important focus.

The program also includes a panel discussion with insights and advice on legal research from three experienced practitioners and W&L Law alumni:

· Hon. Rudolph Bumgardner III, ’66L – Senior Judge, Court of Appeals of Virginia
· Jennifer G. Dean, ’12L – Partner, Virginia Immigration Law Center
· Robert E. Dean, ’10L – Associate, Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore, LLP

After attending, you are eligible to earn a Certificate in Legal Research to add to your credentials and show value to employers. One lucky attendee will also win a $100 gift card courtesy of Bloomberg Law.
